I shook my head reading your post, Winter, shook it like, "Yeah, I know how that is." What is it about us women that we have to leave the house immaculate when we go away? My mother did the same, and because I saw her do it, I did - it's not like the house was a total mess to begin with. Hope today is an easy one at work and goes by fast for you.
G.T. and partner left at 6:00 this morning for their friend's boat on Lake Winnie. He (friend) is a planner and has most of the hours of the day and night planned with places to see and places to dock for meals. Our friend who battled cancer (and got a clear test a few months ago), has a summer place not too far from the Lake and she and her husband will meet up with them one of the nights for dinner. I hope they are getting warm sunny temps up there. The middle of the Lake can be downright cold on a rainy damp day.
After being carless for a couple of days, I have a multitude of errands to do, we have a family birthday coming up, there's that, and 3 or 4 other things that need to be taken care of.
Going to check again to see if Harry is out under the shrub. My giant hare was trimming the edge of the lawn again last night. I had put out the remains of a section of watermelon, hadn't gotten it cut up fast enough and it was past the ripeness that I like. Put it way up back, but with my "spy" glasses I could see he wasn't interested at all in that. Didn't see the small bunny, the woman next door said it has been going under their deck and I heard her husband saying something about "chemicals". Great. I told her it wouldn't do any harm or try to get into her house, but she has a neighbor on the other side who "chemicals" everything, and who knows what he filled her head with.
Off to start the day. My list of errands is all written and waits on the table. I'll check in later.
